B = Boxer G = Gladiator S = Sniper M = Magician g = Gunner P = Priest
BBBG BBBS BBBM BBBg BBBW BBBP
BBGG BBGS BBGM BBGg BBGW BBGP
BBSG BBSS BBSM BBSg BBSW BBSP
BBMG BBMS BBMM BBMg BBMW BBMP

BBWG BBWS BBWM BBWg BBWW BBWP
BBPG BBPS BBPM BBPg BBPW BBPP
Following this pattern...and just replace the letters with the next one on the next class on the list (for example BBPW would be GGBP) then you will find out that 43 lines x 6 classes would make that 258 possible teams.
This is just for those who honestly wanted an answer.
Everyone trying to find a formula to this should test it with simplified settings: 4 Rangers, 2 classes result in 5 different combinations (BBBB BBBG BBGG BGGG GGGG) 2 rangers, 3 classes result in 6 different combinations (BB BG BS GG GS SS) I have the feeling this has something to do with the Pascal triangle. My guess (from numbers I tried) is: For every addional class, I go the triangle one floor down and left. For every additional character, I go one down and right.
This thread is about math. You want to know all combinations, so you have to think about all combinations - that is math related. I don't think 7*6*5*4 is the lower limit, because you didn't eliminate different permutations with that.

It DOES relate to Pascal's triangle. This is a combination test (or some people might make it a permutation test), namely, 7nCr4. This would be the 7th row, and the fourth over, or something like that.
In vs mode do the order stay the same or flip when you are the opponent?
If it flip then in the case of vs mode (where the order may cause a huge difference) then it would not matter as much assuming the person is active in vs mode in terms of getting battles and battling himself.

Now that there's 8 classes, there are 330 possible teams (not counting ordering since a smart player will know which order to put their characters in anyway). Painstakingly did the math out myself and then checked it up against Pascal's Triangle, so I'm pretty darn sure I'm right. Should a ninth class be added, according to Pascal's Triangle, that would bump the possible team number up to 495.
